Dear Dennis, Cathy, Paula and Kevin,
I was so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I have many fond memories of her when we visited Villa Grove. She was always so kind to all of us and we loved her joyful smiles. I will be praying for all of you. The Lord has blessed us with the ability to remember happy times in the past. Treasure those memories.

Dennis, Kathy, Paula & Kevin, We are so sorry for your loss. I remember fondly your mother's laugh and smiles. She was always the most upbeat person I knew. She made you feel good just to be around her. On holidays and summer stays in Villa Grove she always took good care of us and made us feel "at home". We will pray for you that you will be comforted and sustained by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Don & Ann Legel and family
